    Where to get an OFFICIAL White Dual Shock?

    As my old DS3 decided to stop charging, I had to order a new one. I ordered a black one from zavvi.com because it was cheaper than anywhere else at the time, though this was nearly 2 weeks ago and it hasn't even dispatched yet (they have been contacted, and 'are awaiting delivery from the stockists') and was thinking about cancelling my order, so I was looking for a White one instead. I have looked EVERYWHERE that I can think of (amazon, play, zavvi, game, game stop, game station, shopto, ebay, gumtree etc etc) and nowhere seems to sell OFFICIAL white ones for the UK. I found somewhere called buySPRY.com [an American company] but they haven't replied to my email..
    Is there anywhere that will sell me an official white dual shock for less than 40(inc postage), because if it's anymore than this I might as well just buy a black one and be done with it. Any ideas? Cheers
    Also: Amazon do sell them, but from the reviews they are fake as they are from a used and new trader

    hmv.com: Music CDs, DVDs, Games & More

    That's where I got mine about 2 years ago. It is official Sony one as well.

    I looked on HMV before, and they were nearly 50, didn't fancy paying that for just a coat of paint... But 40 that's cheaper than I have seen them.. Hmm. thanks mate, I'll bear it in mind

    Actually, while I'm at it.. Can anyone tell me if something from playasia is suitable:
    Buy Dual Shock 3 (Ceramic White) (PS3) - Play-Asia.com
    Purely because it says compatible USA and not Europe, like the blue one does. But would this make any difference to a UK model? I know the Japanese versions are O/X switched (well the games are) but the Jap version is a lot more money... Thanks for the replies

    Hmm white dualshocks cost the exact same as the black ones on Ebgames site here, ill have a look on a few others but theyre $78 seem to of come down a little bit.

    https://www.ebgames.com.au/ps3-14499...-PlayStation-3

    Every one seems to be the same price as the black ones here this looks exactly the same as my black one.

    Grey blue and all the other ones i found for $75 as well on another site didn't even know they made grey ones they look pretty nice though.



    Pretty sure you should be able to find them for a lot less than this in the UK though.


    Edit:

    Isnt this what your looking for?

    EDIT:
    This works a bit easier for anyone in the UK looking for one

    Thanks for the replies.
    There are several ways to tell
    But that's the trouble, I don't want to have blown 40+ on a piece of shit Chinese rip off that will not work after a week. It's hard to tell with some of them unfortunately. Which is why I want an official one. Thanks again for the replies

    Having checked out ebay, it is pretty difficult to tell which ones are the fakes and which ones are original sony, despite the 'official' or 'genuine' claims, it's hard to find a legit one.
    Thanks for all the replies guys, I managed to find one, thanks to the link from Wastedyou (don't know why that didn't come up when I searched it but thanks), so it's all good.

    Never had to clean it or anything? Not that it would be too much of an issue.

    Yeah i went through it by looking up PS3 accessories instead of just searching Dual Shock originally, that UK site is so hard to find stuff on though really :x
    I think ill need to be getting a new PS controller soon though, failed New York Minute Hardcore that many times from stupid glitches now lol.

    Since were on the subject of controllers and speaking of grey ones earlier, they seem like they're new? got 3 new preorder ones at EBgames and JBhifi dunno if these are old news or anything in other countries but i havent seen em before, pretty sure they would be official ones though ill have to look for a sony article i guess.

    I almost always remember the white ones being available in Australia, they came out here awhile after they came out in japan though.

    I swore I saw some at my local Best Buy. They would be full price in USD and that's $55. Seems they sell them online too.

    Sony - DUALSHOCK 3 Wireless Controller for PlayStation 3 (Classic White) - 98066|98066

    But that's for the US I guess. Seems like a hefty cost for someone to buy it for you and ship it to you.
